DHS Desk Maximisation, Caroline Chisholm Building
|Client||Department of Human Services (DHS)|
|Size||Throughout office areas of Caroline Chisholm Building|
The Department of Human Services (DHS) located at the Caroline Chisholm Centre in Tuggeranong, ACT needed to modify its office space in order to accommodate an expanding workforce.
The Department is spread over three floors, and needed to maximise the quantity of workstations and staff that could be accommodated in this space, whilst still fulfilling lease conditions.
A more open-plan office layout was required, with works including the addition of new workstations, removal of redundant offices and meeting rooms and creation of new breakout spaces and tea rooms.
The work was undertaken in an occupied space necessitating a staged fitout with a very strong focus on safety considerations and minimising disruption to DHS operations.
